New Report Calls to End Beating of Children in Public Schools

A shocking report illuminates the state of disturbing forms of
discipline in U.S. schools. Released last week by the ACLU and Human
Rights Watch, the report finds that more than 200,000 public school
students in the U.S. were punished by beatings during the 2006-2007
school year. Further, minorities and students with mental and physical
disabilities are punished at disproportionately higher rates in the 13
states that corporally punished more than 1,000 students per year --
despite no evidence that these students commit disciplinary infraction
at such disproportionate rates.

The ACLU and Human Rights Watch call upon the U.S. government to
prohibit corporal punishment in all public schools and urge state
governments, school boards, superintendents, and administrators to
eliminate physical punishment in their schools.


>> Learn more, and read the report.

Let's all join the ACLU and Human Rights Watch in calling upon federal, state, and local governments and school boards to disallow corporal punishment!

I agree with this cause. I also think parents should not be allowed to spank either.
